Matthew Yglesias: Cops in Ferguson are itching for a huge riot
Authorities say protests ok til 9:40. Then some 200 protesters marched toward police/some threw bottles at cops. Then police responded.

Remember, this is what they are up against:
Cpt. Johnson: four police officers were injured by rocks or bottles tonight. No bullets were fired by police. 30+ arrests.

Of course, none of that matters to liberal writer Matthew Yglesias, who views local law enforcement — not the rioters, not the looters — as the blood-thirsty villains in Ferguson:
Cops seem determined to press this until someone gets killed or they get the huge riot they've been itching for.

When you’re a liberal, it’s always — always — the cops’ fault.
